Re: How To Run WIth Laptop Closed?

Go to "System Settings", then "Power" (you might need to click (switch to advanced mode in order to see the "Power" tab) and Select: "When the lid is closed", and turn it to "Do nothing". That should be it.

Re: Installing Skype

You can easlily do this in two ways: first, you can open up a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install skype However, since you directly downloaded the Binary from Skype's website, you most likely have dependency errors and that command won't work. My suggestion would be to first try to type: sudo ap...

Re: Can I use the applications backup to do this?

Theoretically speaking, it would work. However, if you have extra apps on your old LM12 install that are not needed (for instance, the Mate desktop), it would install them on LM13 as well. While you can use the Backup tool to do this, my advice would be to check twice your selection and make sure yo...

Good one! Didn't know you could do that with inxi; should keep that in mind instead of using "cat /etc/apt/sources.list"

Re: Screen brightness strange behaviour Dell Inspiron 9400

It seems strange that Ubuntu 10.04 worked fine, but Mint 12 doesn't. Are there no configuration files that can be altered? I don't know how the system works, but I imagine there is some kind of conversion of the screen brightness value into the voltage supplied to the backlight, and it is the conve...
